|Masters Of The Green Insects - V.A.|
While other labels focus more and more on artist who are "excellent musicians" and "instrumental geniouses", Candy Mind is taking another perspective of view. So let´s set this straight: We only want "real men" (disregarding gender) on our label. To be included in the Candy Mind rooster you must be skilled in both stone cutting, welding and hunting. We refuse to work with nerds who swarm, like insects, around computers and books...

Dorothy's Magic Bag is giving us a beautiful, yet sinister gift this time; a dance mosaic. You never heard of dance mosaic before? You're not the only one.

Daniel andréasson enters the world of Candy Mind with a suitcase full of mixtapes, a French phrase book and a bunch of other things that we are not allowed to mention here. He has recently escaped his everyday life as a...ok, well we are not allowed to write about this either so...

One morning when he wakes up something is just wrong. A weird feeling is going up and down his spine and he doesn't really know what's up or down. Something is haunting Psilodump. He's packing his bags and sets out on a journey... Now when he's standing here, with his bag in one hand and his Dick Tracy novel in the other, prepared to travel far, he doesn't know at all what awaits him...

|Liquid Stranger - Dead Or Alive - Liquid Stranger|
We decided to pay Liquid Stranger a visit. He has been hiding in a graveyard ever since Shuggoman tried to put him on fire during a performance in Wien. Apparently Liquid Stranger owed him loads of royalty $$$ from their kinky-ragga-days but refused to pay back. "The money is gone yo" he said when we asked him. Now our Stranger is on the run and had to sell eight of his tracks to Candy Mind just to get some money for food...and beer...and woman...and guns and such...whatever...

|Soulshit - Perky Chap|
Ladies and gentlemen, let us all be quiet when our new artist, Perky Chap, plays his songs. With a repertoire of all from housey pop music to introvert and sens full drill'n'bass, this release is something special. Taking us flying from happy badminton day trip "Badminton Song" to vampire drum'n'bass in "Nosferatu" and ending with a bang in a self-examinating noisy meditation in Soulshit, the chap is really taking us on a journey to remember, a journey you'll never forget.....
|Burning Chocolate - V.A.|
Sometimes things are burning. It's very hard to avoid that fact. It can be a lot of things that goes on fire: houses, people, bushes... and of course also chocolate. First it's melting, dripping down the chimneys faster than St. Claus, and when it's even warmer it burst in flames... On this compilation we have a lot of different chocolate lovers (And non-lovers. Actually, it's presumably more non-lovers on this release, bur it's much more catchy to write about them as chocolate lovers, isn't it?...

|Filip och the rocker - 50herz|
The seven piece orchestra 50hertz, armed with toy synthesizers and an overdose of twisted humour are storming our bandwith, impossible to ignore and horrible to behold. You will never be able to figure out what 50 hertz's next step is so you better go with the flow and listen to what they have to say...or play. They have a big, black synthesizer called "the mastermind" and they are wellknown for causing a riot when on stage...
|Automation - Penny And Ashtray|
Candy Mind is back from the stack with a nice new release from Japanese chip-techno star "Penny and ashtray", who's telling us, for example, which way that is the way up. Minimalistic and naive, "Automation" is feeling like a fresh wind from the other side of the ocean (or many oceans perhaps), giving us a dancing experience we'll never forget. Ranging from electroish "This way up" to retro "Don't push", "Penny And Ashtray" is making us dance, always singing with his unmistakeble electro-voice...

Normaly we won´t allow humans to release music on Candy Mind but this time we just couldn´t say no.

|Goto80 - Bravo [CANDY007] - Goto80|
Already a wellknown name in the indie scene for his creative and kaotic meddling with old computers, Goto80 continues to bring us some of the most incredible 8-bit sonics of this world. With the "Bravo E.P." Goto80 is giving us a hearty and overdriven welcome in "välkomstvisan, an addictive "Semiasy" samba adventure and the dark, fuzzy madness of "Wombatman". To add some extra flavour to this release we´ve let Goto80 himself do a culinary rework on Välkomstvisan and our Liquid Stranger is let...

This is a live adventure of Hectopascal, from the picturesque realms of Veddige. Its very much, according to them, an improvised one-take story produced with rusty electronic antiquities. We on Candy Mind are glad to release this unpolished and spontaneous EP; totally free from any pretensions. Ranging from clay music in Play Doo, to the hurried count in Greven Från Köln and ending with a bang in psychedelic Svälj Din Saliv, this is true music, instant lo-fi rocknroll electronix!

We all know that its something, but so many are the people who have asked and had theories about whats hiding inside the magic bag. Candy mind is asking the same question. Starting our with happy but impulsive Häxor, going further down the bag with the contemplative and meditative hip-hop-track Dreamlands, giving us the spectacular blipnbass-story Idiosynkrasi, making us laugh with silly Monster and ending with sorrowful and distressed Our world, Dorothys Magic Bag may be giving us a clue of wh...
